Recycled Car Parts Turn Art
The exhibit, which includes many recreations of classic and vintage cars, will run from November 21 to December 19, pistonheads.com informs.
Corbett discovered his talent for creating his amazing pieces of art whilst running an auto recycling business in Brisbane. His first piece was an off road race buggy. The feedback from his friends and customers was so positive that he has decided to create more pieces.
Since then, he has been creating sculptures out of scrap for years, and much of his work has concentrated on cars and bikes. Many of the parts he uses come from rare and classic cars, and are sourced at scrap yards and swapmeets in Corbett's native Queensland.
Moreover, he says no part is bent into shape, but it’s original integrity is maintained. “The parts themselves are often interesting, some are as much as eighty years old”, he says.
Corbett once built himself a full-size car in the style of a pre-war racer. The car he named 'Toad Hall' is based on a Model T Ford chassis, and powered by a tuned Mercury flathead V8.
A selection of the amazing sculptures that Corbett has created, some of which will be at the forthcoming exhibition, can be seen in the photo gallery below.
